MidCoast Libraries are presenting a series of workshops across the region to help seniors become more technology savvy.

Join us at free face-to-face Tech Savvy Seniors sessions in November and learn how to navigate your smartphone, tablet or laptop.

Workshops will include one-on-one sessions that are tailored to your individual needs and will help you gain confidence navigating your device.

Topics covered could include making and receiving calls, adding or accessing contacts or apps, sending texts, emails, messages or photos and accessing the internet. You will discover all those little things that make using your smartphone easier. 

Group workshops provide people the chance to learn from others’ experiences and will help you gain confidence and navigate the language of new technology.
